    How do you feel about NHS staff getting separate hours at Iceland and Asda?

    I've been hearing a bit of stuff of some staff abusing the system by dragging along friends and family or anecdotally about NHS staff having ID stolen.

    The latter of that is nonsense as you need photo ID to match your face!

    I have mixed feelings on it, as I do the right thing and use a basket for the fam and not a huge trolley piling shit in, but then I see some staff members doing just that.

    Anyone actually been to a supermarket today? Is it better or worse than it has been?
